Happy Solstice!

I am a yoga bird! A few weeks ago at a yoga retreat at Arsha Vidya Gurukulum in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, as I was shake loose a few pine cones from a spruce tree, two yoginis mistook me for a bird! As they came around the tree and saw me they burst out laughing. I was dressed colorfully in my Indian dress. I decided to memorialize that very amusing incident using a painted bunting.

A little late in the month but this is my submission for the Art Journal Journey Circles. This mixed media piece was created using crackle medium for the background, a vintage ad label and clear glass marbles with pieces of maps adhere on the back. The photo does not do justice to the glass marbles.

Summer has finally arrived here in New Jersey and the flowers are blooming joyfully.

Thanks for visiting.

Painted Rocks

These are some of rock paintings I created to donate to the Spring Fair and Plant Sale at Trailside that took place two weeks ago. This was new for me: painting on such a small scale using acrylics. I bought a full bag of rocks from a local landscaping store and used Golden and FolkArt craft paints. It was challenging initially but got better as I did more. What is great about rock painting is that one can create really substantial art at very low cost.  I enjoyed doing them a lot and plan to do many more time permitting.

Thanks for visiting.
